The following issues need to be resolved for the Burnstation Prototype

Will the prototype produce only DVD ISOs

  • The Burnstation requirements call for the system to produce DVDs or VCDs
  • The current prototype design talks about DVD ISOs and VOB files
  • Will the prototype be able to produce a VCD?
  • Will VOBs be suitable for VCDs?

When to produce VOB files

  • The current design has the transcode daemon system producing VOB files for every video in a Plumi system
  • The benefit of doing this is that it means that when a DVD ISO is being assembled by the Burnstation system, there's no need to encode VOBs, making it faster.
  • The problems with this approach are:
    • This will slow down transcoding of multiple videos (more work for it to do before it can get the Flash files produced if there's many videos in the queue)
    • This will consume more disk space on the Plumi server as many videos may be uploaded that are never burnt to disks
    • If the eventual system is to produce DVDs or VCDs, will VOBs be suitable for a VCD ISO? (see issue above re: prototype producing VCDs as well as DVDs)
